A Loyola University computer with the Social Security numbers of 5,800 students was discarded before its hard drive was erased, forcing the school this week to warn the students about potential identify theft.

“Although we have no evidence that any of this personal information has or will be accessed, we want you to take every possible step to safeguard your privacy,” Loyola vice president and chief information officer Susan M. Malisch said in the letter.

The university will offer a year’s worth of free credit monitoring for those affected by this breach.
